Adding Personality to Your Purse

The idea of accessorizing your accessories may seem like overkill, but it turns out to be really fun and a great way to set your bag apart from the rest with your own signature style. Over the last few years I've collected some scarves or "twillys" (this is just a weird word Hermes came up with to describe their thin scarves) and bag charms. I don't often add these accoutrement to my handbag, but I will have to say that it's getting more and more addictive. Especially this little fur pom pom I picked up from Etsy. It seems to go with so many of my bags and it always makes me smile when I wear it. The only down side? My dog William is obsessed with it! My fear is that it might go from being a bag accessory to a dog chew toy in the blink of an eye!

  4. You look fabulous, and I love that skirt! I am seeing more and more purse accessories, and they keep getting cuter to me. I am loving the purple with the gold...adorable, Katie!

  5. Really love the bright colors in this outfit!

  6. I don't have any purse charms but the idea does sound really fun! I would like to add something I can hook my keys on so that they don't keep getting lost in the abyss of my huge purse! Love this look, especially that gorgeous, colorful skirt!

  10. Oh dear, best keep the pom poms away from your dog!
    Just a beautiful skirt - the colours are just stunning and it looks gorgeous with the blue top.

  11. I keep going back and forth about these purse charms but you are definitely convincing me I need one...especially since I'm such a monochrome gal and most of my purses are black or gray! Love your hair styled like this, you look gorgeous Katie! Hope you're having a great week so far! XO -Kim

  12. All those pieces together are so perfect!! Just loving that cobalt blue with the skirt. Pretty!!

  13. Fascinating stuff about bag embellishments. Clicked on your photo through Style Nudge as I recognised that skirt - I found one of these in my local charity shop and my daughter snaffled it - such brilliant, vibrant colours. Lovely styling x
